al-Mughīrah ibn Shuʿbah ibn Abī ʿĀmir ibn Masʿūd ath-Thaqafī (Arabic: المغيرة بن شعبة بن أبي عامر بن مسعود الثقفي‎‎) was one of the more prominent companions of Muhammad and one of the four 'shrewds of the Arabs' (Duhat al-Arab). He belonged to the tribe of Thaqif of Ta'if. In his old age, he became the governor of Kufa under the Ummayad Caliphate Muawiyah I.

Mughira ibn Shu'ba was one of the last companions to see the Prophet before his death.

Mughira was known for his weakness for women. He married no less than 80 wives, keeping to the shariah limit of 4 at a time.[1]
